Victory Ravelings 


The Class of 1920 

Volume Twenty-Six 


The Victory Ravelings has been published under very 
unusual conditions. Owing to the World War there was no 
annual in 1918. The Class of 1920 felt that at no other time 
had a year book been more necesary and this volume is the re- 
sult of efforts to outline the events of I9i7-'i8, to tell of the 
activities of I9i8-'i9 and to compile a record of Monmouth's 
part in the Great War. 

The class gives its thanks to the parents and friends who 
ha\e contributed pictures and information and to the faculty 
and students who have helped the staff so willingly. Es- 
pecially are the Juniors indebted to the artists whose wtirk 
adds much to this book. They are; J. Horton Windmuller, 
'22; Ralph Douglass, Ex. '19; Algot Bowman, Ex. '22; 
Audrey Ross, '22. 


To the sons of Monmouth College, 
who served in the Great War this book 
is respectfully dedicated.

Sophomore Class History 

Oil the twelfth of September in the year of 1917, Company '21 enlisted in the service 
for the honor and glory of Monmouth College. The company lacked in training, but not 
in spirit. When Captain McMichael called "Attention", he found company '21 full of bright 
promises for tlic future of Camp Alonmouth. 

Scarcely had two weeks of hard training passed until they displayed their superiority, 
by hoisting the blue and gold upon the pole. This victory over company '20 was celebrated 
that night around the camp fire at the "Weiner Tree". 

In athletics many of the privates of '21 proved their ability in sportsmanship, and were 
given the honor of representing Camp Monmouth in football, basket-ball and baseball. Their 
literary ability nuist also be mentioned, for four of them helped win the victories on the 
debate platform. 

The Red Cross workers added their liit to the cause of their country and camp by work- 
at the headquarters in McMichael Building. During the year many of the privates were 
transferred from Camp Monmouth for further training in the service of their country. 

On the twenty-second of l'\l)ruary, Cnmpanies '18, '19, '20 and '21, with their captains 
and lieutenants, united in a patriotic dinner in honor of the founder of their country. 

In June the lieutenants and privates were granted a three-months' furlough. On Sep- 
tember 18, 1918, Captain McMichael summoned his lieutenants and privates to Camp Mon- 
mouth, where they entered upon another year of training. This year found many changes 
in the camp life, owing to the critical period of the War. From Company '21 four of the 
sergeants for the S. A. T. C. were chosen, including the Top Sergeant. The Red Cross 
workers were still faithful in their efforts to serve. 

King Flu endeavored to break up the camp, Ijut was unsuccessful, altho he brought 
about several weeks quarantine. When tlie whistles announced the glad tidings of the sign- 
ing of the Armistice on November the eleventh, the quarantine was lifted. This was a day 
long to be remembered, not only in Camp Monmouth, but all over the world. 

Demobilization of the S. A. T. C. began December nineteenth, while the Red Cross girls 
were away on their Holiday furlough. 

Although the S. A. T. C. and King "Fhi" put a damper on athletics for a time, when the 
basket-ball season began. Company '21 again went "Over the Top" in representing the Red 
and White. The literary activities were revived and for the second year Company '21 played 
an important part in the intercollegiate debates. Four of the six debators, who defeated Coe, 
after faithful training, were from this Company. 

The camp life was strenuous because of the training, nevertheless the privates found 
time to mingle in many social events. Perhaps the most enjoyable of these being the banquet 
held the twenty-first of February, when Company '21 entered upon the "Peace Envoy." 

Under the splendid leadership of the captain and lieutenants, tliey have been loyal to the 
good blue and gold and have eiuleavored lo do tlieir bit for the honor of the Red and White. 

"i'o we'll boost the Sol>homorc Class and the blue and gold 
An' Everything."

Freshman Class History 

Who's who in M. C. ? What a superfhious question. When you have read of the il- 
lustrious deeds of the Class of '22 there will be little doubt in \'0ur mind as to its answer. 

Perhaps you are interested in locating the famous athletes of our institution. Several 
stars of the greatest brilliance may be found on the Freshman roll. At least two members 
of our class were always on the first team in basket-ball, and many a time the old gym has 
resounded with shouts occasioned by their spectacular playing. Due to such afflictions as 
the S. A. T. C. and the "flu" we had little opportunity of displaying our skill at football, but 
in baseball and track Freshman names are prominent. 

Lest you should think that the Class of '22 is all brawn and no brain, we refer you to 
our record in debate work. Two members of Monmouth champion teams were Freshmen, 
and their work gives us reason to hope that our class may sometime boast an Abraham Lin- 
coln or a Stephen A. Douglas. 

Perhaps you have not noticed the verdant hue of our college Glee Club. We feel safe 
in asserting that most of the popularity of the M. C. warblers was due to the unusual tone 
qualities emitted by our fair undergraduates. We are also proud to claim the college reader, 
who accompanied the glee club, in our number. 

As social lights we shine resplendently in the first ranks. Especially at our banquet on 
the- Twenty-second, such awe and respect seemed to be occassioncd by our impressive ap- 
pearance that no attempt was made by our ancestral enemies to mar the harmony of the 

We admit that there may have been a tincture of chlorophyll in our composition. But 
chlorophyll is recognized as being a sign of life, and, as our record reveals, this is a quality 
very much in evidence. 

Our numerous accomplishments have scarcely lieen touclied upon in this brief eulogy, 
but should we tell you all we fear there would be no space left in the Ravelings for the upper 

So here's a toast to the Frcshimm Class, 

To M. C. ahvays true: 

Here's to every ivarrior and every lass. 

To the Orange and the Blue.

Monmouth and Service 

The very name of Monmouth has come to be reckoned by many as syn- 
onomous with service. That conception of Monmouth, of her ideals, and of 
the principles for which she stands explains why seventy of her sons and 
daughters have entered foreign mission service, why over four hundred have 
enlisted in the gospel ministry, and why two hundred and fifty are in the 
professions of law and medicine. 

The identical conception of Monmouth led one hundred and fifteen of 
her young men to leave college halls after April 6th, 19 17, and enter military 
service. That conception of life and service led over four hundred of the 
"Sons of Old Monmouth" to leave home and the activities of their home avo- 
cations that they might serve in the various branches of Uncle Sam's great 
army. That conception of Monmouth's ideals and principles led eleven of 
her honored sons to gladly give their lives in obedience to the Generalissimo's 
command, "They shall not pass," and to save their fellows from galling bond- 
age to autocracy and militarism. 

There was no hesitation when the call was sounded. Many men only 
waited the opportunity, others simply waited their turn. To many of us it 
appeared like a great business enterprise, and each waited his opportunity to 
enter. Without spectacle or loud acclaim, each man took his place. Such 
was the spirit of the Monmouth men. 

We have yet to learn of a single Monmouth man who flinched. Not 
one flinched. We know the Monmouth fibre. We know the spirit woven 
into the very sinews of Monmouth character. We know the blood that courses 
the veins of Monmouth men. We know that not a man of Monmouth flinch- 
ed. Whether it was to patrol duty in "no man's land" or to "go over the top" 
in charging the enemy every Son of Monmouth performed his duty. Not 
one flinched, and if he fell, he fell facing the enemy. 

And some fell. Five fell in the home land Init they were no less heroes 
because they were unable to fall on foreign soil. Those who gave their lives 
were Lieut Harry Paul Martin, M. D., '02; John Lawrence Teare, '16; Robt. 
D. Buckley, ex-'i3; Richard Abraham, ex-'ig; Ralph H. Ferguson, ex-'20. 
Six of our boys fell "over there". These were Will Cole, ex-'og. who fell 
in action at the "Battle of Verdun", April, 1919; Lieut. Albert H. Bell, Jr.. 
'15, who fell in action at the "Second Battle of the Marne", July 2t,, 1918; 
Lieut. Ralph W. Stine, '15, who fell in action at the "Second Battle of the 
Marne", Sept. 26, 1918; Charles Parr, ex-' 18, fell the victim of meningitis 
in France, Oct. 11, 1918; Wendell L. Tingley, ex-'i8, who fell the victim of 
pneumonia at Manchester, England, Oct. 26, 1918; Clark E. Marsh, ex-'o3.

Monmouth Music Club 

That the stiul\- (if music might l)c promoted and Ijetter artists brought to 
the city, a group of Monmouth music lo\ers organized what is known as the 
Mtmmouth Music Club. It co-operates with the College Conservatory and has 
succeeded in its work remarkably well. 

Those people who are especially interested in music whether they are 
citizens <ir college students are eligible for membership. 

Man\- interesting local recitals have been given. The Music Club has 
also helped to nbtain the exceptionally good musicians which have appeared 
upon tiie autlitiirium platform in the last two years. The club has not been 
acti\e the past }ear but expects to resume its work next fall.

Artists Course 

The management of the Artists" Course is one of the most important 
works of the Conservatory. Monmouth people have been fortunate indeel 
to have the privilege of hearing the following noted musicians : 

Sascha Jacoljsen ^'"iolinist 

Duncan Rol)erts( m Baritone 

Jeanette Durn< 1 Pianist 

Irene Jouani Soprano 

Signor Alberto Salvi Harpist 


Mr. Glenn Shaver, basso, assisted by Miss Kettering, piano, presented 
a recital which was attended liy a large number of music lovers. 

Both of these artists possess marked ability and are a credit to those 
under whom they have studied. 


One of tiie musical treats of the season was the two-piano recital given 
by Miss Riggs and Miss Kettering May 9, 1919. It was the first program 
of this kind ever given in the history of the Conservatory. From start to 
finish both pianists displayed clean, lirilliant technic, abundant temperment 
and true sympathy. 


Boys' Glee Club 

Monmouth College has ever been proud of lier Boys' 
Glee Club, which has represented her, with splendid con- 
certs in many different states. 

There was no 1918 Club, however. The boys were 
engaged in a much greater work, that of representing Uncle 
Sam in the World War. 

But now that their duties in this country and across 
seas are ended, some of them have come back to finish their 
college career. That would not be complete without a Glee 
Club so they reorganized and with the help (^f the new stu- 
dents are tloing the work according to fdrmer standards.

The Monmouth College Student Army 
Training Corps 

In the spring of 1918 plans were made by the War Department for estab- 
lishing Student Army Training Corps in the universities and colleges of our 
country for the school year of 1918-19. The purpose of the S. A. T. C. was 
to give the college men military training while they were securing their edu- 
cation in order that they might be prepared to take up active service in the 
army when called. Officer material was to be selected from the various corps 
and sent into officers training camps every three months and a certain number 
of other men were to be sent into either a non-commissioned officers' school, 
a special scientific school, a special mechanical school or a regular cantonment. 
The military ability and the scholastic standing of each man would determine 
to a great extent into which of these five branches of training he would be 
placed. Every man in the Corps would be a soldier of the Unted States Army 
and as such would receive his room, board, clothing, and pay of thirty dollars 
per month from the government. October i, 19 18 was the date set for organ- 
izing the Corps.

Three S. A. T. C. camps were established during the summer of 1918 to 
which a certain number of men from each institution were sent for two months 
intensive miHtary training. Monmouth College was one of the institutions in 
which an S. A. T. C. unit was to ht organized ; so she was calleil upon to send 
three men to the camp at Fort Sheridan, 111. Dr. McMichael selected Robert 
Hume, William Axline, and William iMcClenahan as Monmouth's represen- 
tatives, and accordingly these men reported at Fort Sheridan on July i8th, at 
which time over three thousand college men representing two hundred and 
fifty-six institutions assembled for training. After one month's training Wil- 
liam Axline was sent to Camp Hancock, Ga., to study machine gun tactics and 
Robert Hume was transferred to a bayonet detail and gi\en instruction in 
bayonet fighting. About the middle of August four more men were sent to 
the Fort for one month's training. The men sent were Tom Wherry, Robert 
Gillespie, Fred Blick, and George McClure. At the end of camp six of these 
men returned to Monmouth prepared to assist the commanding officer in train- 
ing the Unit when it was organized. George McClure was ci^mmissi< med antl 
sent to Manhattan, Kansas. 

The War Department sent Lieutenant Adolf G. Meinhart, Jr., to Mon- 
mouth as commanding" officer of the S. A. T. C. Unit at Monmouth College. 
With headquarters at Monmouth he had charge also of the unit at Hedding 
College. Lieut. Meinhart came from the Carnegie Technical Institute where 
he had been instructor. His ability as an officer manifested itself from the 
beginning" and he won the respect and confidence of the men even before the 
Lhiit was organized. Lieutenant Rail I. Grigsby was sent to the Monmouth 
L^nit as assistant instructor and personnel adjutant. He had received his 
commission upon the completion of a course in pers(innel work and company 
.administration at the Fort Sheridan Camp. The spirit and zeal with whicli 
he took up his work caused the men "to sit up and take notice". Wilson J. 
Fischer was sent to the L^nit as administration clerk. 

The formal organization of the Monmouth College Laiit took place in the 
College /Vuditorium at 1 1 o'clock on the morning of October first. At this 
time all S. A. T. C. L'nits in the country, composed of more than one hundred 
raid fifty thousand college men, were formally organized. All of the students, 
faculty, and a large numljer of friends were present to witness the exercise. 
The program consisted of addresses by Judge R. J. Grier and Dr. T. H. Mc- 
Michael, songs by the Girls' Glee Club, the prescribing of the oath of alle- 
giance by Lieut. Meinhart. the reading of the orders of the War Department 
and the appointment of the student officials by Lieut. Grigsby. It was a very 
impressive exercise and one that stirred up the patriotism of all tliose pres- 
ent. The student officials were : 

Acting First Sergeant, Robert Gillespie; Acting Supply Serge.ant, Fred 
Blick ; Acting Mess Sergeant, Robert Hume ; Sergeants, William .\xline, Wil- 
liam McClenahan, Tom Wherry. 




who fell the victim of pneumonia in France. Of this number. Bell and Stine, 
both of the "Class of '15", have each been awarded "Distinguished Service 
Crosses" for valor on the field of battle. 


These were the "Sons of Monmouth" with the Monmouth fil)re and bl<">d 
spirit. They did not flinch. They fell, but they cuuld well sing as they 

" * :]: H: * * 

By. Old Life, It's a Pine Road Out! 

Hf ^ ifli :^ :^~ 

Loi'c's not killed 7chcn life is ended. 

Love trinuiphant. Love iimuorfal 

IVins back through death's cloudy portal." 

Not all the Monmouth boys surrendered the life physical. There were 
some who passed through fire and blood and were spared even injury. There 
were some who found life and the real purpose and object of life. Some, 
doubtless, found their own souls, and in the spirit of Lincoln, "highlv resolved 
that these dead shall not have died in vain." 

Looking on the whole scene from the present close prospectus, we can 
only say, "all honor to the Sons of Old Monmouth," who ser\ed "Christ's 
Cause" in the world war. If space permitted we would give each his rightful 
place and "honorable mention" individually. Space forbids. We can only 
mention the four hundred and more as a body, and offer our salute and honor. 

If the sons of the men of the Sixties rise up ti> call their fathers lilessed, 
how much more ought we to honor our fathers and sons, our linithers and 
cousins and sweethearts of 1914 and 19 18.

must come the new resolve to dedicate our lives anew ti> the ideals and prin- 
ciples for which our brothers have fought and bled. And

Little Five Conference 

Monmouth College belongs to the "Little Five" Conference which has 
for its members five schools of the middle west. Beloit College of Beloit, 
Wisconsin; Lake Forest College of Lake Forest, Illinois; Knox College of 
Galesburg, Illinois ; Northwestern College of Naperville, Illinois and Mon- 
mouth College are the members. Northwestern is the newest member hav- 
ing been admitted this year after the resignation of Armour from the o in- 

In 191 2 the football title was awarded to Monmouth and she succeeded 
in holding it until this year when her schedule was cancelled and the champion- 
ship went to Knox. The record of the "Red and White" basketball teams, 
altho there have been numerous championship quintets, has not been sci bril- 
liant as that of the average eleven. Last year the baseball nine won the flag. 

This year in athletics Monmouth has played well but not with her usual 
brilliancy. This is probably due to the aI)normal conditions. Yet all schools 
have faced the same conditions. All athletic teams were practically made up 
of green material who had never before participated in a college varsity 
game but the showing they made certainly looks well for future teams. 

Football 1817 

Uncliml)k-(lly llic riiuihall season df 1917 was a success. Although the 
disastrous Lombard game seenictl ahiiost a cHsgrace, tlie team, under tlie ex- 
cellent work of Coach Stegeman, managed to pull through the schedule in a 
most creditable manner. 

When the first call was sounded for practice some fcjrt}' men responded 
immediately. Reed, Graham, Ferguson, Rodgers, Brook and Captain Wray 
were the only "M" men in school, the rest having entered the service. Con- 
secjuently prospects for a winning team were not cxceedinglv bright. How- 
ever as the practice developed it was found that among the new men, Pyke, 
Groat, Earp and Robinson showed considerable pigskin ability. As a result 
Coach Stegeman whipped into shape with practically nothing Ijut green ma- 
terial a team that would have retained the State Cham[)ionship iiad it not 
been for an over-dose of hard luck and constant changes. 

With the date for the first game the hard luck had Ijegun. But when the 
time came on October 6, the team journeyed to Fairfield, Iowa, where it met 
the best eleven Parsons College had assembled for some time. Parsons was 
bitter for revenge for her numerous defeats at the hands of the "Red and 
White" and was quite confident of victory. As a result Monmouth emerged 
the victor Graham having caught a pass over the Parsons line making the only 
count of the game. The following week Penn College invaded the local 
gridiron and lost in a hard fought game 7 to 3. On October 20th the fatal 
day arrived. Coe was playing great football in Ljwa and was probably the 
highest bidder for the State Championship. In a game that resulted in a great 
many injuries Monmouth went down to her first defeat Ijy a 14 to 6 score. 
The team cayie out of the game in bad shape. Ferguson, the star tackle, had 
a broken collar bone. Earp, the center, who did more damage than any 
other lineman received a badly sprained ankle. Robinson, the fast and scrap- 
py little half was out of the game for good due to a badly injured knee. In 
such a crippled condition the team invaded Northwestern. On the trip more 
hard luck hit the "Red and White" camp. Pyke, one of the best tackles, was 
injured on the train and out of the game. When the referee's whistle ended 
the game against the Dutchmen the score was 14 to 7 in their favor. The 
next week the exhibition against Lombard occurred. With practically a 
lineup of substitutes Monmouth lost 24 to 14. On the loth of November the 
first conference game came. It was one of the biggest victories of the year 
when Lake Forest was walloped 23 to 13. It was in this game that more 
hard luck came to the team. Ferguson got liis leg broken and was out for 
the rest of the season. On November 17, Illinois College was swamped 59

to 10. The last game of the season came on "Turkey Day", as usual, with 
Knox. Over two thousand witnessed a game that was marked by clean, fast 
and hard playing. The "Red and White" made four touchdowns while 
Knox was making two but the referee saw fit not to count all. When the 
time was up the score was a tie, 7 to 7, and Monmouth still held the title. 
Wray was the star of the game. Reed, the fighting half was marked and 
unable to get away. Every man on the team fought like a hero and they 
certainly upheld the prestige of Monmouth.

Basketball 1918 

The 1918 basketball season cannot be called a distinct success. Out of 
twelve games played, Monmouth emerged the victor in three. However the 
team fought well regardless of the many adverse circumstances. 

When the 1918 scjuad reported for the first practice there were two let- 
ter men in school, Graham and Capt. Wray. Coach Stegeman had gone into 
war service so the boys fought the entire season through without a coach. As 
the season progressed Graham, probably the best center in the conference, 
enlisted in the navy. Because of such things it was found necessary to make 
numerous shifts and this along with the fact that the team was mostlv com- 
posed of men whose athletic ability ran along other lines than basketball made 
the season an exceptionally hard one. But nevertheless the bovs had the old 
spirit and fought the season through in a credital)le manner. 


Basketball 1919 

This year in basketball Monmouth faced one of the hardest propositions 
conceivable. With only one letter man in school the outlook for the usual 
successful season was not exceedingly bright. However, Coach Ghormley 
took over the green material and de\eloped a team of which the school was 
proud for they certainly had the "pep" that wins games no matter what the 
score may be. Altho the results of the games do not show a successful sched- 
ule the student body is satisfied with the work of the quintet. They worked 
well together regardless of the fact that there were several injuries and it 
being the first year of their playing together. 

There were fourteen games on the schedule which opened with Hedding 
College on January ii. Here the Monmouth quintet accomplished what ap- 
peared to be the impossible. Hedding lost for the first time on her own floor 
in many a year, the "Red and White" getting away with the long end of a 
20 to II score. On Jan. i8 the fast team from Augustana invaded the local 
gym and won 28 to 23. The next week the first Northern trip was taken. 
Monmouth lost two games; one to Wheaton 23 to 11 and the other to Lake 
Forest 34 to 15. On Feb. 8, Knox tonk a hard fought game after a victory 
for Monmouth seemed certain, ly t(3 20. On the night of Feb. 14, Lake 
Forest was taken into camp 31 to 18. This was the biggest victory of the 
season, for the North Shore men defeated Knox the following evening by a 
large score on the hitter's floor. The worst defeat of the season was met 
when the team lost to Augustana 63 to 19 in the return game. This count 
beats the record for any Monmouth defeat. The remainder of the games 
resulted in defeats with the exception of the return game with Wheaton. 
Monmouth received the worst drubbing ever given her by Knox when the 
latter won 44 to 14. But nevertheless the college is proud of her team and 
knows that next year when the old men return from the service to help this 
year's fighters a championship quintet will be the result. 

Baseball 1918 

The 1918 Baseball Seasmi may be called a distince success. Due to the 
fact that Armour Institute and Lake Poorest had disccintinued athletics until 
the end af the war, Monmouth, Beloit and Knox were the only competitors 
for the conference flag. Beliot failed to put out a team and the champion- 
ship went to Monmouth. 

Because the season was not begun until late and because so many of the 
Middle West schools had cancelled all schedules only a few games were played. 
Out of six games Rlonmouth won four. Much of the success of the team 
was due to the hard work and guidance of Capt. Ferguson, for the boys were 
still without a coach. 

Ferguson captained tlic team from the back-stop position and a better 
man could not be found. Farp on the mound had a successful season, no team 
getting a great numljer of hits off him. Pyke was a fine first baseman play- 
ing the initial sack in a \ery judicial manner. Cobb played a good game at 
second all season. Boyd at third was one of the "peppiest" men on the team. 
He held down the sack in fine shape. Wray at shortstop had his usual suc- 
cess in athletics. He was a first class fielder and a heavy hitter. In the field 
Reed, McClenahan and Kilpatrick played star games and were all heavy hit- 
ters. The majority of these men will be back next year and the student body 
is looking for another championship team.

Ralph H. Ferguson was Monmouth's Orator in lyiS. win- 
ning second place in the State Oratorical Contest. The 
subject of his oration was "International Patriotism", and 
he made a stirring and forceful plea for that highest de- 
gree of patriotism. 

He died from influenza, just six weeks after lie en- 
tered the service. How fitting that he should later gi\e 
up his life in fighting for the principle which he so sin- 
cerely maintained. 

Paul RIcKee, Monmuuth's representative in the Illinois 
Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest at Eureka on Decem- 
ber 13, added another honor to Old Monmouth's record 
by winning first place. This makes the eighth time Mon- 
mouth has won first place in the forty-one contests that 
have been held; and she has won second place eleven times, 
a record to be proud of ! 

McKee will represent Illinois in the Inter-State Col- 
legiate Oratorical Contest which is to be held in Omaha. 
Nebraska, in May. 


The Fullfilment of Time 

In all history there is no story more tragic than that of Jerusalem. No country has 
suffered so many wars as Palestine, no city so many sieges as the Holy City. Over Pales- 
tine have raged the tides of war. On Jewish soil empire has struggled with empire. Time 
after time have the walls of the metropolis been builded only to be battered down before 
the terrific carnage of powerful opposing forces. Thus runs the sad story of the blessed 
city. The Jew stands today — the one man without a country — "the chosen martyr of in- 
humanity." His nationality has been lost. He has been trodden upon and slaughtered that 
the hate of nations might claim a victim and that the desires of governing powers might be 
gratified. Due to predjudice, cruel, inveterate and lasting, all nations have ostracized the 
Jew. Russia and Turkey have harried him until his political lineage is practically extinct. 
Germany has made him the scapegoat of her peoples. Spain gave him no peace from the 
sword of oppression. Though he fought and died for those countries he received in pay- 
ment lead and cold steel. We have only to recall the horrible acts of the German Juden- 
Gasse, of the powerful Moslem empire and of mighty Russia to know the wretchedness of 
such a persecution. Why this systematic oppression? Because he was a Jew? True, but 
not enough. The Jew has never fitted into the economic life of his oppressors because they 
were governed by a feudal civilization; a civilization containing that high degree of ser- 
vility which the Jewish mind cannot accept. 

The perseverance of the Jews is the marvel of human history. Scattered over the en- 
tire world under all governments, the Hebrw race has preserved without a country and with- 
out a government, a cohesive racial instinct which no disaster has destroyed or scarcely 
weakened. While nations and religions have fallen the Jews have lived, preserving and ex- 
tending their dominion. They are today the only race of antiquity. They have lived for a 
future of spiritual supremacy and a united nation under God. 

The world owes the Jewish race a large debt for its contribution to progress. As states- 
men Jews have stood in the foremost ranks of all nations. England has never produced a 
greater statesman than that genius of diplomacy, Benjamin Disraeli. Nor has she brought 
forth a greater politician that that "ripe fruit of her noonday", Lord Reading. Germany 
can boast of no greater leader than that champion of European socialism, Ferdinand LaSalle. 
France never had a more loyal patriot than the man who paid from his own pockets one 
hundred thousand francs toward the German war debt — Isaac Cremieux, America has writ- 
ten on her roll of honor the name of an ex-ambassador, Oscar Strauss. And today Russia 
calls for her finest leader of democracy, Alexander Kerensky. Eleven different powers 
entrusted their interests within the Turkish empire to one man — the American Jew — Mor- 

History illustrates the virility of Jewish patriotism. In America they fought under 
Washington and Grant as though they were of our own blood. They have fought and died 
under all the flags of Europe spilling their life-blood as though for a Jewish nation. Five 
hundred thousand gave their lives in that late nightmare of war that their adopted country 
might live. Where are we able to point to a grander display of patriotism? Is there one 
who can doubt the loyalty of the Jew? 

As educators the Jews are unexcelled. It was David and Isaiah who made poetry im- 
mortal and idealistic. What race has produced a genius greater than Spinoza or Mendels- 
sohn? Is it not significant that one of the ablest professors of economics is Harold Laski 

of Harvard? Is it nut significant tliat oni.' of the greatest of University professors is Fred- 
erick Tanssig? Is it not significant that the greatest living anthority on economics is Ed- 
win Sclignian of Columbia? 

It was the Jew who gave us the great connecting link between God and man — the one 
book — the Biljle. Practically all the books of the Bible were written by Jews. There is no 
hymn or prayer which does not have embodied in its structure the thoughts and character- 
istics of the Jews. There is no description of Almighty God equal to the one set forth by 
the Jewish race. "Our religion itself is based upon those deep foundations revealed by God 
thru the Jews to Mankind ; for thru these people has been developed not only the Jewish 
religion but also the Christian faith which is merely a development of the religion of the 
Hebrews." Indeed the greatest of all debts we owe to the Jew is the one of our faith. 

The twentieth century finds the Jews united in a purpose, .\fter suffering nineteen 
long centuries of persecution they have awakened to the dawn of their brightest day. 

The beginning of the great movement was launched at Baisle in the year 1897. Pre- 
viously Dr. Theodore Herzyl had published "The Jewish State." From this originated the 
great Zionistic ideal which has become a movement with a platform in no way religious but 
rather rooted in earthly dealings and present realities. It is based upon the two fundamen- 
tal propositions ; that modern Palestine is fit for the modern Jew and that the modern 
Jew is fit for modern Palestine. The leaders of Zionism make no claim to divine authority 
but the movement has gripped the imagination of the world. Today Zionism is no longer 
a dream, .'Ml Jewry is stirred. The oppressed Jews of Roumania. the hated Jews of Rus- 
sia and Turkey, the free Jews of America and England have awakened to the task of work- 
ing out their own destiny, for this Jewish problem depends largely upon the Jew himself. 

The avenue to direct settlement has been opened with the capture of the Holy City 
by the British army. Not only does this portend the possibility of another autonomous set- 
tlement which will satisfy the craving for a homeland but it will end the bitterness of an 
oppressive dominion extending over two thousand years. .-\nd what would be more fitting 
than a Jewish nation reborn after centuries of national disintegration ? 

The re-establishment of the Jewish national home will achieve a great political and 
moral end. "What the colonies have already accomplished is merely prophetic of what might 
be done under more favorable conditions. It will hold open the door for the transmission 
of ideas between the East and West making its positive contribution to the problem of 
harmonizing their divergent conceptions." With the complete cessation of Turkish rule in 
Palestine not onl)- will the ^Mohammedan influence thruout the entire world be effectually 
weakened but those virtues which lie sadly dormant and unacknowledged will become more 
fully realized. Most significant, the Jew will cease to be the one man without a country. 

Paramount in importance to the political aspect is the mortal significance of a Jewish 
Palestine. There is no doubt that the Jewish problem is as important to the Gentile as to 
the Jew. To re-establish the e.xiled race in their homeland free from all persecution is to 
help free the world from one of its greatest dangers; that danger against which democracy 
continually battles ; that which allows one man to buy his bread with the sweat of another 
man's brow. 

Since the destruction of Jerusalem the Jews have fled before edicts of despotism and 
persecution to what they hoped would be happier lands. Often their hopes were blasted 
before the same persecutions, but happily those who immigrated to .America found a refuge 
where the rights of a man are determined not by his race or his religion but by his honesty, 
his industry and his character. Time changes the attitude of peoples. In the last few gen- 
erations we are unable to point to any organized oppression of the Jews. .\11 nations who 

once rejoiced in that discriminating persecution have suddenly ceased as though a greater 
power held the higher hand. Why this change? The people are awakening to finer ideals. 
The spirit of democracy is prevailing. The principles of America are being spread broad- 
cast and the world is eagerly taking them up. 

But out of all these persecutions there has come to the Jew a most wonderful gift. They 
have become the most cosmopolitan of all races made so by their direct associations with 
all peoples. And what a wonderful opportunity! It will enable them to build a mighty 
nation upon the virtues of all. 

The Jew has become civilized. He has become human and he learned that lesson in 
becoming cosmopolitan. Now he is fit to become nationalized. Under autonomy nations 
will cease their brutal discrimination. Then his genius will burst forth into the most mag- 
nificent splendor. He has his choice of all economic and social life for he has gathered from 
all parts of the earth the ideas and ideals of every nation. The best he will preserve and 
use. the rest he will discard as not essential in the moulding of his nation. An ideal from 
here and another from there. His state will be truly great and idealistic, his capital that 
city of their life-long dream. "In the historic homeland of the race the Jewish conscious- 
ness will be enabled to develop its fullest expression unhampered by ghetto walls and the 
blighting force of autocracy. In Zion the Jewish soul will have an opportunity for its full- 
est self-determination and self-expression in accord with its great inherent genius." Such 
a land will be governed by unpolluted democracy. There will be no tyranny for true so- 
cialism will be a most significant factor and the Jew having suffered persecution will not 
be likely to thrust it upon others. Such discrimination is not in his makeup. He will rule 
not by might but by right. There will be no discrimination between races because of their 
blood and traditions but there will be a united feeling for service toward mankind and the 
gates of the city will be thrown open to everyone, rich or poor, Jew or Gentile. 

Who shall pay to the Jew the world's great debt? Who shall oflfer recompense for the 
nineteen centuries of persecution? Who shall remunerate for his years of faithfulness and 
loyalty? Who shall reward him for his invaluable gifts in literature, science and culture? 
Who shall thank him for our religion? You and I — the present generation. 

If the Jewish problem is ever to be solved satisfactorily the world peace conference 
offers the great opportunity. The treaty must provide for a Jewish Palestine. The guar- 
antee of the homeland is the only logical solution for this enigma and representatives can- 
not afford to disregard the finest plan. The land is the ancient heritage of the Hebrew 
race and it must be restored to the rightful owners not only because it is just and proper 
but because such a nation will prove a blessing to the entire world. And why not? The 
Jews are equal to the performance of such a task. "Let us then remember our past and 
think of our future and secure to the Jews the possibility of building a new Palestine on the 
ruins of the old." Jerusalem stands at the dawn of a great future. Jerusalem the blessed 
awaits the return of an exiled race. And what sings the watchman in the tower of David? 

"Peace be within thy walls 
And prosperity ivithin thy palaces." 

Paul McKee. 

James-Nevin Debate 1918 

The James-Nevin Debate, held on Jannary 31, 1918, was won by Philn Literary Society, 
by a decision of two to one. 

The question was : "Resolved ; That a permanent policy of price regulation should lu' 
adopted by the United .States Government." Philo took the alTirniative an<l Eccritean the 

The men on the Philo team were Ralph Ferguson, Willis Kilpatrick, and Lyle Craig. 
Eccritean was represented by Harry Rodgers, William McClenahan and Thomas Sears. 

1918 Debate Season 

The debating season of 1918 was characterized by two victories and one defeat, the 
negative team winning two unanimous decisions against Illinois and Coe Colleges, and the 
affirmative losing to Augustana by a vote of one to two. A rather unusual feature of the 
1918 debating teams was the fact that four of the six debaters were members of the Fresh- 
man class, due largely to the depleted enrollment of the upper classes as a result of the war. 

Brief personal mention of the six intercollegiate debaters follows : 

Lyle Craig, leader of fthc affirmative team, has a keen analytical mind and is especially 
valuable in the construction of argument. He is logical, practical and dependable. 

Ralph Ferguson, leader of the negative team, proved himself to be a forceful con- 
vincing speaker. His work in the Coe debate, from the standpoint of elTectiveness of pre- 
sentation and skill in extemporaneous rebuttal, has not been excelled in recent years. 

Walker Milne has a pleasing style of delivery, talks fluently and never fails to make 
a favorable impression on his audience. 

George McClure has an individual style of debating, and his slight tendency to be 
dramatic is a decided asset. He has the aliility to hold the closest attention of his hearers. 

Harry Rodgers possesses a remarkably pleasing and magnetic voice, is perfect in his 
stage appearance, keen in construction of argument, a clear thinker and all in all, a most 
valuable debater. 

William McClenahan made a miique record in debate. Never having appeared on a 
public platform before, he developed rapidly into a most finished debater in one season. 
McClenahan possesses what might be termed a debater's instinct. He is a logical thinker, 
forceful in delivery, and in rebuttal is a man to be feared. 


Debate Season 1919 

The record of Monmouth College in debate for the past six years is fifteen victories 
and four defeats, a record of which we may well be proud. The sum-total of the debating 
season of 1919 is four victories and two defeats, the affirmative team winning a unanimous 
decision over Augustana and by a vote of two to one over Coe, and losing by a unani- 
mous decision to Hedding ; the negative team winning unanimous decisions over Carthage 
and Coe and losing by a unanimous decision to Augustana. The season was distinctive be- 
cause of our unquestionable triumph over Coe College which has the best debating record 
of any college in Iowa. 

Monmouth has been signally favored in the forensic world by the fact that tlie Mon- 
mouth-Coe debates will be published in the "Debaters' Annual", which is put out by the 
H. W. Wilson Co. The book contains the debates of many big universities such as Har- 
vard, Yale and the University of Illinois. Monmouth and Coe will be the only Colleges 
in the country whose debates will be published. 

Any review of the debating season woidd be very incomplete without Tnention of the 
work done by Mr. George Wirtz and Mr. Lyle Craig. They gave most cheerfully a large 
part of their time to the training and assistance of the teams. Their keenness, good judg- 
ment, enthusiastic untiring efforts, contributed in no small way to Monmouth's success. 

William McCIenahan, leader of the affirmative team, is a Sophomore, and has had one 
year's experience here last year. McCIenahan has a peculiarly effective style of delivery 
which always seems to make a favorable impression. His ability as a debater was demon- 
strated at Cedar Rapids when he won the Coe debate in his closing rebuttal. 

Leonard Melburg, though a Freshman, has had high school experience in debating, and 
has an especially pleasing style. He possesses an excellent voice and effective gestures, and 
is perfectly at home on the platform. 

Glen AfcFarland, also a Freshman, is another man with considerable high school ex- 
perience, and demonstrated his inherent ability as a debater. Fssentially a fighter, he is 
convincing, argumentative, and effective in presentation. 

George McClure, the pilot of the negative team, was another man with one year of 
college experience. He is a good worker and an original thinker. His style of delivery is 
slow and powerful, at times approaching the dramatic. He was especially strong on repar- 
tee, making affective use of sarcasm and humor. 

Walker Milne is another of last year's debaters who showed the benefit of his train- 
ing. He is a remarkably steady and reliable speaker and showed great ability in outlining 
the case for the negative. He also has two more years to represent the college. 

Dwight Eckerman won his place on the inter-collegate teams because of his tireless 
efforts. He is a prodigious worker, always dependable, and collected more valuable ma- 
terial than any other member of either team. His rebuttal in the Coe contest was an un- 
usually strong speech. 

Inter-Society Contest 


Neither of the men's Literary Societies could claim the victory in the 
Inter-Society Contest for 191 7; each won fiye points. 

The debate, which counted four ponts, was won by James Smith, Philo, 
from Wallace Dougherty. Leland Henry, Philo, took the declamation, 
equal to one point, from Andrew Rodgers. 

Eccritean excelled in oration and essay. The first, Bclfurd \'an Pelt 
won from Ralph Douglass; the second, Ernest McCaw won from Dwight 

Inter-Society Contest 


The Inter-Society Contest for 1918 was won by Philo Literary Society, 
Philo being awarded all the points. 

The oration was won by Ralph Ferguson, Philo, from Edward Hodge. 

Rockwell Barnett's essay, read by Ward Dalton, won oyer that i^f Harold 

Paul McKee, Philo, took the declamation from David Bryson.

Tau Kappa Alpha 

One of the unusual distinctions which ha\e come to the forensic repre- 
sentatives of Monmouth College in the last few years is the privilege of mem- 
bership in Tau Kappa Alpha, one of the two largest forensic fraternities in 
the United States. Tau Kappa Alpha is purely an honorary organization, 
membership being granted only to men who have represented the college in 
intercollegiate oration or debate, or to a member of the faculty who repre- 
sented his college on the platform in the past. The college feels very proud 
of this distinction, especially as Monmouth through it is associated with some 
of the best schools in the country including several of the larger universities. 

The Monmouth chapter of Tau Kappa Alpha was established in the 
spring of 1916 on petition of the intercollegiate forensic representatives for 
that year. The charter members were Dr. T. H. McMichael, Prof. G. A. 
Andrews of the Public Speaking Department, Prof. M. M. Maynard of the 
Education Department, Mr. G. O. Wirtz, assistant coach of debate, Harold 
McConnell. John French, Robert Teare, Clarence Britton, Lawrence Teare, 
and Carroll French. The organization is, however, retroactive in that it will 
accept as members men who have represented Monmouth on the platform in 
previous years. 

There are now eight faculty and undergraduate members of the fratern- 
ity, including Dr. McMichael, Prof. Maynard, Mr. Wirtz. Lyle Craig. William 
RlcClenahan. George McClure, Walker Milne, and Paul McKee. The three 
new debaters. Glen McFarland. Leonard Melburg and Dwight Eckerman. will 
be admitted before the close of the year. 




Y. M. C. A. 

The V. M. C. A. experienced an unusual year along with every department of the 

During the S. A. T. C. period the Y. M. C. A. work was under the supervision of 
the Army V. M. C. A. Funds and equipments were supplied by headquarters; games and 
army stationery were furnished and a canteen was opened. 

During the quarantine, the "V." served its purpose admirably. Bible Discussion Groups 
were held Sabbath mornings, social affairs were arranged (the stag party at the Gym and 
the barbecue is still campus talk) errands were run by the Secretary; and the men furnished 
with reading matter. 

When college life began to get back to normal, the "Y" went back to its regular sched- 
uled program. 

Co-operating with "Y. W." the all-college social affairs were held. The regular Vesper 
meetings were held every Sabbath afternoon. At these meetings various college problems 
were discussed, and speakers from town were invited. 

The Y. M. C. A. was also instrumental in bringing to Monmouth several speakers 
from out of town. Dr. Jordan of Chicago was here for three days ; Dr. Robert McClena- 
han of Assiut College spoke to the college .students on several occasions; James Quay of 
India spoke in behalf of the mission field and Dr. Rankin of Pittsburgh Theological Sem- 
inary in behalf of the Ministry. Capt. McKenrick of the Canadian Army delivered his 
address here imder the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. 

The Y. M. C. A. in Monmouth has accomplished a great deal of good this year. It 
has been backed by all the men and has attempted to foster the spiritual, mental and phy- 
sical growth of the college. 

The best way the students can keep up Monmouth College's standard as a Christian 
College is to stand back of the Y. M. C. A. and help make it a vital working factor in 
the growth of the institution. 

It is their chance to increase the Christian endowment of their college by working for 
the growth of the Y. M. C. A. 

Y. W. C. A. 

This year has been an unusual one, conditions caused by the war and by the influenza 
epidemic have been strange, and at times hard to solve. Y^et the Y. W. C. A. has been able 
to meet these conditions in a remarkable way. 

Owing to the "flu" quarantine it was impossible to hold as many Circle Meetings as 
usual, but the interest maintained in the meetings of the year has been gratifying. 

During the time of the S. A. T. C. the Association tried to help serve by granting the 
boys the use of the Y. W. C. A. room for reading and recreation. 

A new feature of the Association work was the introduction of the "Big Sister Move- 
ment", under the direction of the Membership Committee. 

Inspirations have come to the Association through several conferences. In the summer 
eight delegates represent us at Lake Geneva Conference. One representative attended 
the United War Work Conference held at Chicago in September. This meeting led up to 
the campaign for war funds in which the Y. W. C. A. made a splendid record. Five- of our 
Association attended the Student Volunteer Conference in Bloomington the first of March. 

Much inspiration was received from the visits and talks of Miss Kate Hill, Rev. James 
Quay, Dr. Rankin and Dr. Blake, who gave splendid health lectures to the girls. 

The "Over the Top" Cabinet have been greatly helped by the Advisory Board. This 
board is composed of Mrs. McMichael, Mrs. Van Gundy, Mrs. McMillan with Miss Wm- 
bigler as Faculty Adviser and Chairman. 

Whatever has been accomplished for the Master's Cause this year belongs to Him, who 
never forsakes us, and to those whose efforts in the Christian work of the College have been

Student Volunteer Band 

Avis Hoyman President

The Student \'olunteer Band is made up of those students who have de- 
clared their purpose, "to become foreign missionaries if God permit." The 
Band represents the National Student \'olunteer Movement and is organ- 
ized to keep clearly before the minds of the members, their prospective work, 
to gain the help of associating with those of like purpose, and to create in- 
teVest in the cause of missions in the College. 

The Band meets on Sabbath afternoon and finds great help and in- 
spiration in its study of Brown's "The Foreign Missionary," the exchanging 
of missionary items, the hearing and repeating of Scripture verses, and in 

The Band now numbers fourteen, six of that number having joined this 
school year. Rev. Jas. K. Quay, Dr. and Mrs. Robt. McClenahan and Miss 
Anna Milligan have been helpful to the members of the Band and have ilone 
much to create a missionary atmosphere in the school. 


Le Cercle Francais 

Le Cercle Francais was organized in 1917 under the leadership of Prof. 
Henry Church. Each member must be ready to converse easily in French 
and aside from the practice in speaking the language, much knowledge of 
French life and customs is gained at the bi-weekly meetings. 

The personnel of the club is: Miss Altman, Fh^rence Childs, Elsie 
Fleming, Martha Glass, Ruth Glenn, Faith Sprole, Lillian Davidson, Grace 
Young, Marguerite Moore, Margrietha Kruidenier.

The Student Body 

The Student Body of Monmouth College is organized for the purpose 
of promoting college activities in the best way. Charles Ghormley as Pres- 
dent and Sarah Meloy as \'ice-President were chosen to preside over the 
meetings of this year. The majority of meetings called were pep-meetings 
and the yell leaders, William Britt and Cecil Wilson, led some enthusiastic 
meetings. The student body purchased screens for use on the Auditorium 
stage and gave these to the college. The service flag was remodeled and the 
flag pole presented by Capt. James, was cared for. 




May Party 


Each spring it is customary for the girls of Monmouth College to give a 
May Party in honor of the faculty and young men of the institution. 

The 19 1 7 festival was held the evening of May i8th. The management 
selected the natural ampitheater, south of the dormitorj', as the setting for 
the festivity. It proved to be a very appropriate background for the drama- 
tization of the fairy story, which was well worked out by the various dances. 

The queen is always chosen from among the senior girls by the men of 
the college. Because so many men were entering service, this year the elec- 
tion was held a few weeks before the day set for the festivity. At this time the 
crown fell upon the head of Miss Jean Young of Traer, Iowa. The queen 
was attended by Miss Esther Curry and four little Brownies. As the party 
reached the throne, Miss Curry crowned the cjueen. 

The dances were unusually attractive and pleased a large crowd of peo- 
ple. Perhaps it was the most successful May Party in every respect ever 
presented in Monmouth College. 

This year the girls of Monmouth College diverted from their usual cus- 
tom of having a May Party. In its place a College May Picnic was sub- 
stituted. It was held May 17th, in the "\'alley Beautiful" south of the dorm- 

The girls felt they could not devote themselves earnestly to the Red Cross 
work and also put on a May Party, so the idea of the latter was partially 
abandoned. The custom of selecting and crowning the May Queen was re- 
tained and while simple in its form was very effective. Miss Vera Marshall, 
a Monmouth girl, had the honor of being chosen and she made a charming and 
attractive queen. She was attended by two Juniors, Caroline White and 
Grace Benson ; a Sophomore, Mary Laws ; a Freshman, Annabel Douglass, 
and the Maid of Honor, Miss Lorene Klene. Mr. Ward Dalton, president of 
the student body waited at the throne for the coming of the queen and upon 
her arrival he crowned her Oueen of the May. 

After a season of congratulations, a two course picnic supper was served. 
Although this sort of a May festivity was different from former ones, it 
proved to be quite popular among the college circle.

Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. Reception 

The first social event of the school year is the Young Men's and Young 
Women's Christian Association Reception. This affords the new students a 
good opportunity to become acquainted with the upper classmen and the facul- 
ty members. 

This }ear tiie program was in the nature of a carnival and at no time 
during the evening did the prcjgram drag. The reception was a decided suc- 
cess and even the Freshmen forgot thev were homesick. 

Junior-Senior Banquet 

The Annual Junior-Senior Banquet was held on the evening of Mav 14th 
in Aletheorean Hall. Former hostilities were forgotten and the two classes 
became the best of friends. Miss Grace Benson, president of the Junior 
Class acted as toastmistress. The program was of a patriotic nature and this 
idea was carried out in the decorations.

February 22, 1919 


Class Dav in MonuKnith Cullege came to the front again after a relapse 
of two years. February 21st was set aside as the festive day since the 22nd 
came on Saturd;n'. The members of the faculty and their wi\-es held their 
Washington banquet at the home of Dr. and Mrs. McRIichael. The decora- 
tions were original and \-er_\- cle\erly worked out. The table was decorated 
to represent East Broadway with Monmouth College as the big feature. The 
idea was well carried out in the following toast program: 

The City Street 

Toastmaster— The Traffic Cop Dr. McMichael 

\'iolin Solo — The Brass Band Mrs. Kettering

The Juniors were glad to dispense with their customary "kid part}-" this 
year and accept the invitation of the Senior Class to join with them mi Feb- 
ruary 2 1st in a luncheon. A joint committee from the two classes made the 
plans for the enjoyable event, \\hich was held at one o'clock in A. B. L. Hall. 
The room was beautifully decorated with flags, while the tables were attractive 
with red and white carnations and candles. 

Much surprise was shi.iwn when Miss Leila Brown, toastmistress of the 
occasion, announced the extemporaneous toast program :

Members of tlie Sophomore Class assembled on the eve of February 22nd 
in A. B. L. Hall to enjoy a feast and program, which everyone present de- 
clared the best ever held by the class. The main theme of the toast program 
was peace. It seemed very appropriate because of the steps taken to guaran- 
tee peace between the Frsshmen and Sophomore classes. The following 
toast program was given :

Our New Citizenship 

The late war demonstrated anew great latitudes of American capacity to 
achieve the unusual under the stress of emergency. It equally demonstrated 
American disposition to wastefulness before the conflict. Energy is the prime 
human asset ; so much at least should be clear to us. But if the war has taught 
us much of ovu- possibilities of which we were vmconscious or which we dis- 
regarded, what shall come out of our new accjuaintance with ourselves? What 
shall the principle of self-determination create out of our new and enlarged 
points of view? 

Much has been said about tlie dissatisfaction of the returned soldiers 
with the status quo ante and the necessity of new adjustments to meet the 
wider horizons which they will bring back to our social and civic life. Was 
it only "talk" soon to evaporate, or will our citizen soldiers and the great 
public that was behind them with taxes and enthusiasm for the world-wide 
cause, deliberately seek to gather up the best fruitage oi the great experience 
as a dynamic contribution to American spirit and ideals? ^^''ill our patriotism 
lapse back into its old channels of self-seeking routine or raise for itself a 
standard of expression more disinterested, more constructive, more consid- 
erate toward the ordinary man, woman, and child? The red-white-and-blue 
bunting variety, with a luilien of circumstance, is good on occasions, merely as 
a token ; but let us remember that "peace hath her victories no less renowned 
than war" provided it is worthy. It is not enough merely to perpetuate a 
custom, or turn an event into a memorial. 

Over 1,500,000 persons were given mental tests in our country during 
the war and classified for work and instruction. Satisfactory trade tests 
were given to 250,000 persons to exhibit fitness or unfitness for occupational 
employments. We have learned a few elementary facts about mind and en- 
ergy which should be built upon. It suggests there is a training suited to the 
man, fitting him for larger service to himself and to his country. To ex- 
plore this possibility would be a social act of real patriotism. This obligation 
rests largely upon education. 

Yet scientific tests can never take the place of self -initiative. The nat- 
ural resources of common sense, charity and progressive enterprise are in- 
finitely more productive for the race than "stop-watch" tests of ability or 
curves of practice and progress. The self-seeking spirit has developed a 
sluggish laxity toward civic problems and responsibilities, until men have 
fallen into the superficial habit of of substituting journalistic or party opinion 
for personal judgment derived from intelligent investigation and knowledge. 
Graft, corruption, waste, follow in the wake of such indifference to personal 

initiative. It would be proper patriotism to employ more mental energy in 
the study of economy, efiiciency, and enterprize in public administration. 
Democracy can easily defeat itself by converting the general welfare into 
class welfare by a lazy indifference tii questions whose right decision rests 
upon individual interest. 

Everv enlightened C(juntr\- is emerging from the war with a new C(.in- 
structive attitude toward universal education. There is a conscious feeling 
that from education society must have speedier and more accurate result^; 
that education, looking beyond routine, must build both technically and cul- 
turally at once and contribute concretely and positively to the growing man 
and woman in the community. The new citizenship growing out of the war 
will demand and provide a teaching and administrative personnel with the 
preparation and inspiration to give force to its broader visiim of energy and 

We shall not, therefore, be grateful for peace merely because our side 
has won. That would not be sufliciently intelligent of the cost and meaning 
of so terrific a war. Rather, our gratitude will rest upon the stabler basis 
that we have learned much out of which we shall be abler to build a finer 
life and civilization, individually and collectively, than we enjoyed before; 
that old neglects and wrongs may now be more intelligently attacked and sup- 
planted ; that a more genuine sympathy and sacrifice (so-called) shall now be 
made by each for others; that the old Satan, or adversary, of selfishness shall 
be superseded by a social culture worthy of the name ; that petty individual 
ambitions and pride shall be thrciwn into the discard of the dead past, so that 
we shall all be able to make all things new by becoming new i mrselves. 

Not only greater personal charity in spirit and practice, but for the or- 
dinary man more of the grace of faith. Religion, intelligent and trans- 
forming, must become the legacy of the war for all, for its contribution to 
individual hope and helpfulness. Not the religion that restrains and makes 
diffident by impressing with its priestliness or that dulls Iiy its parade and 
sense for institutionalism. Still less the religion that hardens into prejudices 
and dogmas and perpetuates sectarian pride. But the religion that looks in- 
ward with a sincere desire to perfect the life and fit it for sharing its joy 
with others, making friends of its enemies, carrying its spirit into all forms 
of work and service, creating like its Master Teacher a finer personality out 
of each passing year, out of every incident and experience. 

The obligations of the new citizenship rest with special emphasis upon 
college men and women because of their unusual privileges. Wisdom must 
be justified of her children, and her children are the learners, those who have 
learned enough to build upon their opportunities and upon their inheritance.

The old Y. M. and Y. W. directories are absolutely impracticable ; they tell you what a 
student ought to be ; they do not tell you what he is. They tell you where he ought to be ; 
they do not tell you where to find him. We suggest our system be installed.

You know women never could write anjthing without a postscript and anyway of 
course we just had to tell you the latest gossip but it's all private so don't tell anybody, for 
we promised not to tell a soul. We told you that diamonds were more plentiful in M. C. 
than A's and you can prove it by just looking around. Katherine McCrery wears a fine 
one (a diamond, not an A) and we think Gillis ought to know how she has been running 
the Dorm this year. If she can manage ninety girls what could she do to one poor man? 
And they do say that Faith Sprole has worn out five fountain pens writing to Bryce. But 
reports are so exaggerated. It's probably not more than four. 

Did you hear that Don Ross's girl visited here? She has a wonderful ring. How 
these boys just in college can buy such rings is a mystery to us. Eugene Scott is just a fresh- 
man but you almost need blinders to inspect Gertrude's diamond. He must have been 
afraid that Bob would get Alarjorie a larger one. Didn't Bob look lost when jMarjorie had 
the flu? Love must be an awful feeling. If you don't believe it look at Annabel and Lyie. 
They are just about the engagedest couple that there is. But then Monmouth always does 
have everything in the superlative degree. Evn the mumps. And squirrels. 

We heard that Grace Benson was certainly glad to be through with the Oracle because 
now she has more time for her hope-chest. She and Dorothy Widger are very busy. Martha 
Glass is another girl that's been making dish towels "an' ever'thing". Don't tell her we said 
so but don't you think it's awfully queer that George carried that ring around with him so 
long before he gave it to her? And he showed it to a lot of people, too. Someone said 
that Ivory Quinby was looking at it carefully, but then he probably wanted to be polite to 

Well, we must close but we'll have a lot more to tell you next time. The freshmen 
have some serious cases but you know how freshmen are. It's some of the older ones that 
look suspicious to us. Paul McKee takes Grace McCullough home from 7 :45 class and 
takes her to the 10:45 and always walks home from chapel with her. They say he has a 
proposal all memorized because you know he stutters. He ought to send a telegram. Miss 
Brownlce says that Elsie Fleming gets a great deal of mail from one place. But you can't 
always judge by that. Little Ellen Woods gets lots of letters. And she seems so sensible, 
too. We'll have something to tell you about Ruth Mcintosh and Leonard Nesbit also. Now 
don't get excited. It's something about Tiny and something else about Leonard. Have you 
heard what they are telling about Horton Windmueller? Someone told us that he had an 
awfully romantic past. We can believe it was awful but we doubt its being romantic. Do 
write soon and give our best regards to everyone ! 


S. Meloy — "Did you know you couldn't hang a man with a wooden leg?" 

Peg Mc— "No. Why not?" 

S. M. — "You have to use a rope." 

McKee — "I tell you I have sawed lots of wood." 
Sears — "You mean 'have seen'." 


This is an Annual. 

It is called the Ravelings 

And other things. 

It is. 

It might be better. 

It might not be. 

It tells about your college. 

It tells about your faculty. 

It tells about you. 

If you like this annual, 

Thank your college, 

Thank your faculty. 

Thank you. 

If you do not like it. 

Do not blame your college. 

It does the best it can. 

Do not blame your faculty. 

It has poor material to work upon. 

Do not blame yourself, 

You are yon. 

Blame the Staff. 

They e.rpect it. 

And keep the change.
